Legendary photojournalist Steve McCurry
 The photos, taken among people of various cultures around the world, emphasize his unparalleled ability to capture the human soul through a lens.
For me a portrait is about connection, somehow you connect with a person, visually or emotionally,” McCurry told designboom. “I’ve often believed that a person’s life stories are kind of written on their face. It’s magical, it’s mystical the way you can connect to a person, it’s hard to describe. You know it when you see it.
